Book Club Meets Once per Season
August 23, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
We’re reading “Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole” by Susan Cain.
From the Amazon blurb:
If you’ve ever wondered why you like sad music . . .
If you find comfort or inspiration in a rainy day . . .
If you react intensely to music, art, nature, and beauty . . .
Then you probably identify with the bittersweet state of mind. Bittersweetness is a tendency to states of longing, poignancy, and sorrow; an acute awareness of passing time; and a curiously piercing joy at the beauty of the world. It recognizes that light and dark, birth and death—bitter and sweet—are forever paired.
Discussion will be led by Eric Shyman, Ed. D., B.C.S.E. Please RSVP with Dr. Blyskal if you’d like to attend.
